What is the Museum doing in response to COVID-19?

The Muscarelle Museum of Art is taking the following steps to help stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • Following the governor’s Executive Order to close (spring and summer 2020) and remaining closed to the general public until further notice
  • Cancelling in-person programming until further notice
  • Implementing guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our staff
